please bear with me. I've been using the LMA for years on a pc(someone else's) and have finally bought my own Mac. I downloaded some flac files and don't know what to do now. Any suggestions for free lossless audio software. On pc I always used flac and mkw audios compression software and was able to easily listen and burn lossless cd's. Would also like to be able to burn 24/96 quality. Any help/ suggestions?

Go to versiontracker.com and search for xACT. It will decode, encode, make checksums, verify - al the stuff Traders Little Helper does on a PC.
If your Mac came with Toast burning software, you should be able to use that to burn 24/96 discs. HTH

I don't think new Macs are shipping with Toast these days. Try DVD-Audiofile, made by the author of xACT:

Thanks for the DVD-Audiofile tip. Seems the link to version 0.74 is dead but the newer version 0.81 is available from the developer:

I downloaded COG from the link here, and also got xACT, and DVD-audiophile.
I am able to play the FLAC files w/ COG, but haven't been able to burn any discs yet. what to do?

I've added files, then clicked create iso? not sure what that means, then it says DVD-A created, and asks if I want to burn a dvd. I clicked yes but nothing happens? Also, I just downloaded the FLAC files from archive, and never converted them. With pc, I used to convert them in FLAC frontend and then burn them. Like I said, just learning, otherwise, love my new mac.
